Inside Tia Mowry Hardrict’s Baby Girls’ Nursery

Tia Mowry Hardrict revealed the insides of her soon-to-arrive baby girl’s organic and rustic nursery to her fans on her Facebook page.

The Sister Sister alum elicited the assistance of interior designer Jake Alexander to create a neutral palette room that Mowry Hardrict said would give her daughter’s personality time and room to customize over the years. In the video, she said she “want[s] the baby to feel comfortable” in her nursery.

The cookbook author added that because and her husband Cory Hardrict‘s lives as actors are hectic, she wanted a “calming” space.

The organic feel of the nursery also mimics the vibe of The Game alum’s rustic baby shower earlier this month.

“I want the whole environment to be calming,” she explains. “That’s one of the main reasons we chose these earth-tone colors — and not only that, I feel like her name is very grounded and very earthy, and I wanted her nursery to represent that.”

The former cooking channel host also said in a previous video (see below) about the difference between her first and second pregnancy is that she learned to not accumulate a lot of products and clothes and furniture for the sake of having them.

“I’ve learned not to just buy so much stuff and for things to be so overwhelming,” she adds.

Mowry-Hardrict says “everything is organic” in the room, from the crib sheets and mattress to the stuffed animals, and that adding wooden fixtures throughout was “really important” for herself and husband Cory Hardrict, with whom she also shares 6½-year-old son Cree Taylor.

She also said that she created a space that her baby can “grow” in, noting that the changing table and other stuff on top of the baby’s dresser can be removed when the baby gets older.

“She can actually use this furniture in her teens if she wants to,” Mowry-Hardrict raves of the light-colored wooden bookshelf and matching dresser (which doubles as a changing table for now).

“What I love about [this furniture is] it’s rustic, it’s organic, as if you’re taking the outside and bringing the outside in,”  she added. A basket weave bull head is affixed on one hall to reflect the fact that the baby is due under the astrological sign Taurus, noted by a bull in the zodiac.

“What that means is strength. And her name means a little bit of that as well, so you can see that there’s some sort of thread there, tie-ins,” she explains. “I thought that was a nice touch.”

The baby will sleep in one of the high tech smart sleeper called a SNOO which emits white noise and gently moves while baby is sleeping to encourage longer and calmer rounds of sleeping.

“One of my friends just had a baby and he texted me and he was like, ‘Tia, you gotta get this thing called the SNOO,’ ” recalls the actress and lifestyle expert. “He said, ‘It saved our lives!’ and I was like, ‘Okay!’ ”

As a report in People noted,  couple of standout items in the baby girl’s wardrobe and accessory collection include a backpack that says “THE FUTURE IS FEMALE,” multiple pint-sized coats, tutus and even one floral-patterned ensemble with matching booties that has a special personal meaning to Mowry-Hardrict.

“I got this outfit because it reminded me of a baby outfit that I wore when I was a baby,” she says. “So when I saw it I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I definitely have to get this for her.’ “

Inside Tia Mowry’s Bohemian Farmtable Baby Shower

This weekend actress and author Tia Mowry Hardrict and her husband Cory Hardrict celebrated the impending arrival of their second child, a daughter, at a Bohemian and “whimsical” themed Farm table baby shower at the Il Pastaio restaurant in Beverly Hills.

The Sister, Sister and The Game alum enlisted the help of celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss  who incorporated pink florals, wooden place mats, and twinkling lights at the intimate evening affair.

The mom-to-be of the hour wore a coral lace maxi dress to the event also attended by her 6 1/2 year old son Cree Taylor, her sister Tamera Mowry-Housley, and brothers Taj  and Tavior.

“I’m literally still on a high from my baby shower,” the Instant Mom alum told PEOPLE about her March 31st celebration. “We chose the boho theme mainly because my husband and I have been looking at a couple of names and have been narrowing down. And we felt like her name fit that theme…So we wanted to give some sort of tribute to her already. Cory and I also love the boho styles and everything. It made a lot of sense. The baby shower was in theme with her name.”

 

They didn’t share what the baby’s name will be but did reveal that her initials will be CTH, same as her son’s.

“I learned my lesson, so many people have so many opinions and this is kind of just between you and your husband,” she told the celebrity site. “I’m definitely going to wait, but we did play a game where guests can guess the baby’s name. And some of them were pretty close.”

“It was so incredibly beautiful. It was family and friends, it was all intimate. Whenever Cory and I throw a party, we always love it to be intimate,” Mowry-Hardrict explains. “We don’t really look for really big rooms, we look for rooms where people when they sit down they’re gonna have to talk to each other. It’s all about the experience. I’m such a nurturer at heart and it’s like, ‘Yes I want to have a great time,’ but it’s all about everyone else celebrating this amazing moment. Everyone getting in on this celebration so it was full of love and full of tears.”

Tia revealed that her husband was instrumental for including some of the surprises at the event.

“My husband surprised me, I had no idea. He had Kenny Lattimore come and sing. It was special for me because Kenny Lattimore sang at our wedding. He sang ‘For You’ which is the song I walked down the aisle to,” she says of the special song that also commemorated their 10-year anniversary, which is April 20. “Cory wanted to surprise me with his present. I walked into the room and gasped like, ‘What is happening here?’ and just sang the song. There was not a dry eye in the room. It was just so amazing. It was just wonderful.”

The event was made even more special because of the struggles the couple had to conceive their second child.

“I didn’t think I’d be able to have a second child, and it’s been over seven years since my first pregnancy… I put it off, but I did want to have another child,” she shared to PEOPLE earlier. “I didn’t let my infertility issues define me or define what my goals were and what I wanted out of life. We did try for a long time. It was hard. But I didn’t give up.”

Her husband Cory recently opened up to ESSENCE about his undying love for his pregnant wife:

“I could go on forever talking about my wife [but] I will make sure that I will always do anything that she wants and needs at the drop of a finger to make sure she’s happy… It’s just like how I live my everyday life. [Even] when y’all don’t see that, that’s still what happens in the house. I’m rubbing her feet, running her a bath, doing whatever I can to make sure she’s okay.”

Altogether now….Awwwww!

Cory and Tia got engaged in 2006, married two years later and welcomed son Cree in 2011, before her sister Tamera had her first child, and was still a newly wed.

We know Tamera gave birth to children, 4-year old Aden John Tanner and 2-year old Ariah Talea, with husband, FOX News Correspondent Adam Housley while Tia, presumably was trying to expand her family as well.

As far back as 2013, Tia has expressed interest in having a second baby. “It’s something that we’re talking about on a daily basis, so…we’ll see!” she told E! News at the time.

It’s been a long time coming and perhaps she will share some of her journey later with the public… or not! We’re not entitled to know. (smile)

Congrats! We are so thrilled and happy for this news! Both are our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums.
